SHARE the Dignity is a women’s charity that helps homeless women and victims of domestic violence.

The group collects thousands of pads, tampons and personal hygiene products for women experiencing homelessness and poverty.

They also fund funerals for victims of domestic violence and campaign for justice for women in Australia.

With help from Bunning’s Rockingham and Port Kennedy stores this Christmas, residents can help women in need through the group’s ‘It’s in the Bag’ campaign.

All Bunnings stores will be drop-off points for this collection which provides a meaningful way to donate essential items to women who are doing it tough, experiencing homelessness, domestic violence, or poverty.

From Saturday, November 18 to Saturday, December 2, people are encouraged to support the cause by dropping off a handbag filled with items that could make a big difference to someone in need.

Useful items include essential sanitary staples and personal care products along with any special gifts such as a Christmas card or small note of support.

Share the Dignity Founder Rochelle Courtenay said small dignities can make a big difference.

“I’m looking forward to seeing local communities come together to bring dignity and support to over 85,000 women across the country who are in need,” she said.

To get involved and help share the dignity this Christmas, visit Bunnings Rockingham or Port Kennedy to drop off your handbag and help a woman in need.
